Dustin Brown quotes after Game 4

Game 3 Kings Ducks Getzlaf Quick 2014
Quotes from LA Kings captain Dustin Brown following the team’s 2-0 loss to the visiting Anaheim Ducks in Game 4…

On falling behind early:

“I don’t think you ever want to start down 1-0, let alone 2-0. We can’t give up that type of goal. I know it’s a power play goal, but you say you have to bank them out of the net. Gaborik had a wide open net two seconds before that too. Those are the types of plays we can’t allow.”

On Jonathan Quick being pulled after the first period:

“It’s one of those things. I think it’s a message more for the other 18 guys, not Quickie.”

On the Kings confidence in going back to Honda Center:

“Confidence – if you’re relying on confidence this time of year, you’re generally not playing. It’s about doing the right things and at the end of the day it’s about will around this time of year.”

On not scoring on power plays:

“If our power play isn’t going to be good, it at least needs to go get momentum for us, not go the other way. Tonight it [took away] from our momentum. We need to get back to a 5-on-5 mentality on our power play. Until we do that, it won’t be successful.”

On if he thought the Kings dominated at full strength:

“I thought our second period was good. I guess it’s line to line and player to player how you feel how the game is going. But collectively, we need to find more. Whether you posses the puck or out shoot them- again, this time of year is about results.”
